Remove A Little Here, Add It Over There.
Wish your thighs were a little smaller, your bum a little fuller, your lips a little plumper? Irregularities in body part sizes are common; we all have one area that is a bit too big and one area that isn’t quite there. Fat transfer procedures allow you to transfer the fat from the bigger areas to the smaller areas. Not only do you get rid of what you don’t want, but you are also able to put that stuff to good use and improve another area.
The Ins and Outs of Fat Transfer
The concept behind fat transfer procedures is pretty much what everyone wishes they could do-put that extra tummy fat to good use in your bum, or in your brows, or lips, or almost anywhere. Most commonly patients choose to transfer fat to their lower eyelids to fill hollows, along the browline, and in the lips. Fat transfer is also ideal for filling cheeks, jawlines, and chins, as well as augmenting the angle of the lower jaw. Fat transfer can even be used for body contouring to add volume and shape and to contour irregularities.
A rather remarkable quality of fat transfer leads to incredible results. The fat being transferred is not a simple inorganic filler, but rather a tissue from your own body that has the capability to maintain living cells and long-term enhancement. The stem cells alive inside the fat tissues are quite special and have the ability to act like any cells surrounding them. So for example, when injected in the face, stem cells act like facial fat and skin, or when injected in the breasts or buttocks, they act like they belong there as well.
What this means for your face is that the skin looks younger and more vibrant by improving skin tone and elasticity, decreasing wrinkles and the size of pores, improving stretch marks and adding luminance to a sun-damaged face. Not only do you get the shape your were looking for, but your skin looks healthier and more energetic than before. And you get all this while removing that unwanted excess fat!
